Come join us at Derby Students' Union
The Union of Students at the University of Derby is starting out a new and exciting journey of change, having recently approved a new strategic plan which will carry us forward to 2020 and which seeks to change the way we develop, support and empower our students to help them make the most of their student experience. We want all of our students to have a transformative experience, giving our members the chance to take a lead in the organisation by becoming a programme representative, a volunteer, a part-time student Officer, Student Trustee or a full time, elected Officer Trustee and representing our students interests at the highest decision-making level of our organisation, our Board of Trustees.
To support the Union and its Officer Trustees we are looking for new External Trustees to provide advice, scrutiny and guidance to oversee this exciting new phrase of the Union's development. We are particularly looking for a professional to join us at this time with experience and skills in Finance and Accounting who can bring this experience into our organisation. Previous experience of being a trustee isn't essential as we will make sure you receive the training and induction you need to hit the ground running. What is essential is the desire to want to help the next generation of Derby graduates by helping the Union to be better and go from being a good Students' Union to a great one.
In addition we are specifically looking to recruit an External Chair of the Trustee Board and for this role an understanding of the Union and University role within our local Derbyshire community would be desirable.
